% PLEASE NOTE: The implementation of figures is crude, but it works. Hence, when using this approach, the caption has the possibility to escape the figure. Read your document carefully before submitting it.
% ------------------------------
% The template "articlex.cls" is a modified version of the  document class "article.cls" to eliminate the page numbers. It is modified by Paulo R. Souza Mendes for the NRC 2004. Please note that the "\pagestyle{empty}" command has to be active.
%Originated from \documentclass[twocolumn,fleqn]{articlex}
\documentclass{article} %fleqn]{articlex}
% ------------------------------
% In case you do not have "articlex.cls", use this and put the command "\thispagestyle{empty}" frequently here and there, to suppress paging. It's an ugly approach, but it works.

% ==============================
\section*{ABSTRACT}

\noindent This document is a presentation of the template for abstracts to be submitted to the 8th Pacific Rim Conference on Rheology. The abstract shall reflect the content of the presentation to be made at the conference (oral or poster). The abstract should total between one and three pages, must be written using this template and uploaded in pdf format only. Retain the MS Word or Latex original in case of need to adjust.

% ==============================
\section*{PARAGRAPHS AND FONT}

\noindent The first section should be an abstract. The abstract title line should follow 24 mm below the last author affiliation line. A one page submission may need only the abstract heading above, plus references (at end, if any are made). For longer submissions, please section as is appropriate for your document and results.

\indent The text area should consist of a 16 cm wide centred area on a Letter-size sheet of paper. The title should start on a line 4.5 cm from top. The title should be capitalised. 9mm underneath the title the author names should be listed, separated by a comma, with a superscript number reference to their affiliation and address. The affiliation and addresses should follow 9 mm below the author listing.

\indent All lines should be single spacing. Major section titles, like abstract title, should be printed in 12-point Arial all caps bold. Minor section titles should be printed in 12-point Arial bold. The bulk text should be printed in the 12-point Times New Roman font.

\indent All section titles and the first paragraph of a section should start at the left-hand end of the printed area. All other paragraphs should start with a 7.5 mm indent. There are no page numbers. Please \textbf{do not} add them.

% ==============================
\section*{FIGURES, EQUATIONS AND TABLES}

\noindent For references to figures in the text, please write Fig. number, in bold face as in the following example: See \textbf{Fig.~\ref{Figure 1}}. The figures should be centred on the page. Small figures may be placed besides each other. Figure caption should be FIGURE followed by the number and colon, written out in 10 pt Arial bold face. Figure caption text should be in 10 pt Arial and should be centred underneath each figure.\\ \\

\begin{figure}[htb]

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=7.5cm]{Figure.png}
\caption{\rm Example of figure placement and figure caption}
\label{Figure 1}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

$$\ \dot{\gamma}_w=\frac{12U}{d_o - d_i} \frac{2n^{'}+1}{3n^{'}}\ \label{Eq1}$$

\indent Equations should be centred. The equations shall be numbered with the equation number written in brackets to the right. Please make sure it is enough space above and below (and in between) the equations to ensure easy reading in a good-looking text. Reference to equations in the text shall be Eq. followed by the number. An example is shown in Eq.~\ref{Eq1}.

\indent Tables should be placed similarly to figures. Table caption should be written in a similar way as the figure caption, however placed above the tables. Text reference to tables should be Table followed by the table number using bold face.

\section*{ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS}
\noindent You may include a funding or other acknowledgement, just before the references. We are grateful to the editors of the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society for allowing us to recycle their template!
